Pair of witnesses sought in gas station assault

Police want to speak to men who stepped in to help victim

Police are hoping to talk to two men who came into a Langley gas station following the sexual assault of an employee on Aug. 9.

According to Langley RCMP, two men were in the store just after the incident occurred and one of them physically removed the suspect. Police hope they can help identify the suspect. So far, no other new information has come to light.

Last week, Langley RCMP released a sketch of a suspect wanted in connection to the inappropriate touching of an employee working at a gas station in the 19800 block of Fraser Highway on Aug. 9.

The victim said the man appeared to be intoxicated and came up behind the employee as she ate. He touched her inappropriately, qualifying as a sexual assault, said police. She was able to push him away.

That’s when the two men came in. One of them removed the man.

If you can identify this suspect or have information about him call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. If you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
